  • DailyDead
In the age of modern technology, many people have the resources to pick up a camera and go shoot a movie, but with his new movie Unsane, Steven Soderbergh is going to prove that many of us are already walking around with our own moviemaking device.

When director Steven Soderbergh returned to the big screen back in August, his “hillbilly heist” film Logan Lucky was touted as a comeback, even though he had only been in “retirement” for four years and was actually very busy during that time making Behind the Candelabra and The Knick for HBO and Cinemax.

HBO Films Redefined the TV Movie — Now It’s Poised to Redefine Itself

694 nominations. 162 wins.

No network has so dominated a category at the Emmy Awards as HBO has TV movies. Its unprecedented run dates back to 1993 with a double win for “Barbarians at the Gate” and “Stalin”; since then, it’s lost just four times.

This year, it has two high-profile contenders — “The Wizard of Lies,” starring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer, and “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks,” headlined by Oprah Winfrey — as part of the cabler’s overall 111 nominations. Poised to play spoiler are a new iteration of PBS’ “Sherlock” (which won last year) and the “San Junipero” episode of Netflix’s “Black Mirror.”

“If you look at the category, we know there are a lot of things that maybe aren’t necessarily movies,” says HBO Films president Len Amato, a not-so-thinly veiled slight against the stand-alone episode of “Black Mirror.” “But we just continue to play our game.”

Review. "Logan Lucky"—Steven Soderbergh Remains in Fine Form

  • MUBI
There has always been something rather Hawksian about Steven Soderbergh. Speaking with the French magazine Positif in 1993, Soderbergh actually brought up Howard Hawks, a venerable icon of Hollywood cinema, stating, “The career I would like is John Huston’s or Howard Hawks’s. You know, very varied, many different subjects.” It’s true Soderbergh and Hawks diverge greatly in terms of form—the latter is straightforward, classically composed, no frills; the former is stylish, spontaneous, technically innovative—but their recurring subject matter, with a little stretching, isn’t far removed. Take the focus on working professionals in Traffic (2000), the Ocean’s films (2001, ‘04, ‘07), The Girlfriend Experience (2009), and Magic Mike (2012); though not exactly traditional Hawksian occupations, there is a firm appreciation for a job to do and to be done well. More than that, though, what connects Howard Hawks and Steven Soderbergh is their uniform consistency, not necessarily in terms of year-after-year quantity,

After Soderbergh: See the Top 10 Box Office Track Records of Classic Indie Filmmakers
In a career that began with “sex lies and videotape” in 1989, “Logan Lucky” is Steven Soderbergh’s 26th theatrical release. It will extend his record as the top-grossing American director to come out of the independent scene in its formative years — a period we’ll define as 1975 (Joan Micklin Silver’s “Hester Street”) through 1992 (Quentin Tarantino’s debut, “Reservoir Dogs”).

To be clear, Soderbergh’s an outlier; his billion-dollar box office dwarfs every other indie filmmaker. However, looking at the performance of his contemporaries who got their start in that indie film movement, you may be surprised at who’s on the list. (Note: “Outside wide release” means less than 1,000 screens. Also, the list doesn’t include directors like Sam Raimi and Abel Ferrara, who have independent roots but were not discovered via the film festival/arthouse pathway, or Alan Rudolph, another significant ’80s figure; he started in horror films in the early ’70s.

Logan Lucky – Review

With Steven Soderbergh in the director’s seat, Logan Lucky is a smart heist film with plenty of laughs and surprises along the way. The story follows the Logan siblings; Jimmy (Channing Tatum), whose football career was ended by a bad knee, Clyde (Adam Driver), who tends bar at the Duct Tape Lounge with his one arm, the other having been blown off in Iraq, and sexy sister Mellie (Riley Keough), who cuts hair in a down-scale salon. The Logans are a working-class family known for a history of bad luck. After being canned from his job repairing sinkholes under the Charlotte Motor Speedway, Jimmy gets the idea to pull of an elaborate heist. With his knowledge of a series of pneumatic underground tubes that connect the Speedway’s concession and souvenir stands to a large vault filled with cash, Jimmy sees the perfect opportunity to steal it all during a Nascar race,

‘Logan Lucky’ Review: Steven Soderbergh Returns With Well-Oiled Heist Flick
The biscuits-and-grits comic caper “Logan Lucky” is Steven Soderbergh’s return to movies after a self-imposed retirement from feature directing that no one really believed he would adhere to — especially considering how well-received his TV forays were during that time. (They included the strange and gaudy “Behind the Candelabra” for HBO and the evocative, period-immersive Cinemax series “The Knick.”) Like the proverbial top-drawer safecracker drawn by the lure of a juices-invigorating job, the “Ocean’s” movies’ steward has given first-time screenwriter Rebecca Blunt’s race-car robbery romp his undivided attention, and produced a precision-timed entertainment that, if not among his best efforts,

‘Logan Lucky’ Review: Never Leave Us Again, Steven Soderbergh

  • Collider.com
Although he announced his retirement from filmmaking several years ago, Steven Soderbergh never truly abandoned us. In a world with better theatrical distribution models, Behind the Candelabra would have been in theaters instead of on HBO, and Soderbergh still went on to crush it on TV with the critically acclaimed series The Knick. But now he’s “back” with Logan Lucky, and he hasn’t missed a beat. While I don’t love all of Soderbergh’s films, his talent is undeniable, and with Logan Lucky, he takes a movie that could have been so breezy that it would have …

“After years of shooting my mouth off about absolute creative control, we’re going to attempt to do it,” Soderbergh recently told The New York Times about the movie. “Logan Lucky” is a film about West Virginian siblings who set out to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway, but it’s also an experiment in distribution and a test run to see if filmmakers can cut out studios in order to have creative control and make money directly from the film itself.

Since coming out of a brief retirement from filmmaking following the release of his Liberace biopic for HBO “Behind the Candelabra,” Steven Soderbergh has been awfully busy.
